Victoria Tang-Owen reveals what she’s splurging on this week—from Fendi dresses to Philip Huang linen trousers

If you had grown up in a household like Victoria Tang-Owen’s, it would have been hard not to be absorbed into the world of fashion. As the daughter of the late founder of the Shanghai Tang clothing chain, David Tang, Tang-Owen has the innate ability to put together a killer look—whether it’s her custom Giambattista Valli wedding gown, an ensemble with Chinese designs by Ms Min or a head-to-toe look by MSGM. What’s clear is that over the years Tang-Owen’s style has only gone from strength to strength.

While trends may come and go, to her, one thing will never go out of style: shopping sustainably. The co-founder of creative agency Thirty30 says: "I tend to take a more sustainable approach to fashion. I believe that one should buy less, but buy better—whether that’s buying pre-owned goods, re-discovering pieces in your wardrobe or up-cycling clothing."

Here, she takes us through her summer hitlist.

Dune Dove Linen Trousers, Philip Huang

“[Husband and wife duo] Philip Huang and Chomwan Weeraworawit are good friends of mine and I just love what they do. These unisex tailored trousers are a perfect addition to my closet. They are hand-tailored, 100 per cent linen and hand-dyed in 100 per cent natural mud dye from Sakon Nakhon in Thailand.”

XA Pro Fusion Advance Low-Top Sneakers, Salomon S/Lab

“These have been in my cart for a long time but unfortunately, they are now out of stock. I have a dark-coloured pair, and they are by far the best workout shoes. They are very light and durable, and the best part is the quick-lace toggle fastening.”

Laser-Cut Leather Ankle Boots, Alaïa

“These boots are so easy to wear, and I know they’ll just get better with age. Timeless!”
